Aspen tree


Trying to go artsy fartsy with this. :) It's fun to try different angles.
We have a few aspen trees and I love them because they grew tall fast but they also have little shoots that grow in the grass or flower beds and we need to constantly cut those down.
Have a happy day!

Iris



The best thing about this flower is that it will grow in clay. I have an area where I can't seem to break that clay and they thrive there! They also spread quickly and are easy to divide and move if you want to. I also like that the leaves stay green once the flowers die.

Have a happy day!

Anemone


Another favourite growing and blooming in my garden are the anemones. They grow very easily and spread every year. They enjoy full sun areas.
Thanks for stopping by!

Bleeding Hearts


I love these flowers. If you look closely, you can see the shape of the flower ressembles a heart. It also looks like a little drop if falling off the flower. These are blooming in my backyard right now and I just love them. They are native to Japan. They are wonderful for your shady garden. Best of all, they are perrenial (they come back each year). If you are looking for ideas of what to plant in your shady areas, this is a wonderful colourful plant.
I will continue posting photos of flowers from my yard on this blog. These are not stock photos. They are mine.
Thanks for stopping by and have a happy day!
